Now it’s time to remove the inner gloves. Like with the outer gloves, there are two very important things to remember:

  • First, pay special attention so that you don’t contaminate your hands.
  • Second, don’t snap the gloves which could cause spray.

The process to remove the inner gloves is the same as it was with the outer gloves. Hold one of your wrists so that your thumb points up. Pinch that glove and lift at the wrist, then roll it down until the glove is completely off in a ball in the palm of the other hand. Then, slide a finger down and inside the glove on the other hand and pull it off until it’s balled around the first glove. Dispose of the gloves.

Once your gloves are off, it’s very important that you don’t touch your face, any exposed skin, or any surface in the room.
